[mythtv-users] GF4 TVOut - Flickers, Especially White Colors

Having some difficulty getting my new GF4 card's TV Out up and
running well. Working, but flickery, especially with overscan.
I've a GF4 with 4336 driver set. The image is pretty steady when I
don't overscan. But to fill the screen, I need to overscan. I use
the standard option called for in the howto (Option "TVOverScan"
"0.7"). Also -- for those considering upgrading to
nvidia-graphics5336, overscan didn't work for me until I downgraded
When I do this, the screen continuously flickers quite noticeably.
Especially the white colors. The problem isn't that bad when
watching TV, but when browsing the menus, I'm getting a bit nauseous.
The GF4 card I have doesn't seem to have a TV encoder like I'd expect
to see on my old GF2's. (brooktree, chrontel, etc). When XFree
starts up, the log captures "TV Encoder Type: NVIDIA". What's up
because of that, nvtv doesn't work with the GF4 I have.
So, bottom line: Its working, but not well. Should I go out and buy
an RGB to S-VIDEO converter? or continue to try to improve the video
Did I just buy the wrong card? Are there ones with better TV
encoders that I should have looked at?
